According to the Chinese zodiac calendar, 2021 is the year of the ox. According to wildlife biologists, it could be the year of the wolf. It’s easy to argue there’s never been a better time for wolf watching in Yellowstone, where the wolf population is estimated to be up by as much as 20 percent. Last year marked a quarter of a century since wolves were re-introduced to the park. Today, it’s home to some of the best wolf watching in the world. Yellowstone’s gray wolves don’t know we’re in the midst of a global pandemic. They have no clue they were removed from the endangered species list in October. All they know is they need to survive another winter.
